“I have no idea either!” Xu Que shook his head and said, “For this reason, I suggest that all of you should stay away from here. Otherwise, if something dangerous really happens, I will not be able to protect all of you!”
If something dangerous really happened, he could take away Buttface and Duan Jiude with a Celestial Grade Divine Escape Spell if he had to. Of course, he would also save Liu Jingning. But he was not able to save the rest of the people in this place. So he decided to remind them at this moment, which could also stand as a favor, which he could return to Ji Wuyun who had lent him a Celestial Artifact.
“Thank you for reminding us, Elder Xu!” Hearing that, Ji Wuyun expressed his gratitude by bowing at Xu Que. All the rest of the people moved back, including Bai Cailing and the people from the Jade Lake.
At this time, Xu Que lifted his right leg slowly, which was wrapped by dazzling golden light. It was his powerful Act-Tough King’s Leg! He could break all kinds of Arrays and spells with the power of this Leg! This so-called Secret Door, which was just like a restrictive spell, could never withstand the Act-Tough King’s Leg, which was enhanced by the Holy Physique. In order to save Liu Jingning, Xu Que didn’t want to preserve his strength. The next moment, the highest level of Act-Tough King’s Leg, which consumed 100,000 Acting Tough Points, kicked out heavily.
BOOM! A big bang rang out. With all the people who had moved way back still watching, Xu Que’s right leg landed on the invisible barrier heavily. Soon thickly dotted cracks appeared on the Secret Door, which was broken open immediately. The next moment, an entrance, which was as dark as an abyss, appeared. This pitch-dark entrance looked like an opening to a bottomless pit. Inside that bottomless pit was a beautiful woman–Liu Jingning, who was healing her wounds by performing secluded cultivation. She was sitting inside quietly with her legs crossed. It seemed as if she had no idea what was going on around her at all.
“This is so weird! Why do I have such a bad feeling about this?” Buttface said as he frowned dubiously at this time. Duan Jiude also stepped back and said seriously, “I also have such a feeling! I’m afraid I will have to practice divination before we do anything!” Then he took out the tortoiseshell that was at the level of an Inferior Celestial Artifact and was about to practice divination. Xu Que didn’t stop him because he felt a gust of chilly Qi was gushing toward his head from his feet. He had an instinct of extreme danger as if something horrible was staring at him. The people behind them were also shocked and stared at the black opening in a daze.
“So, this is what is behind that Secret Door!”
“We underestimated it before. It is not just a barrier. I guess it should be a way to isolate from the world. Anyone who is isolated by it will leave this world!”
“That Ms. Liu is just sitting in it and doesn’t know what has happened. I’m afraid it won’t be easy to get her out!”
Many people were talking about it in low voices. For them, this was something new. So they could do nothing to help Xu Que.
“Elder Xu, I have an item that could be used to take Ms. Liu out from this place!” Bai Cailing said at this time. She took out a white silk scarf, which was the same color as her robe. It looked quite common. However, when it was taken out of her hand, Xu Que was shocked to find that it was actually a Low-grade Celestial Artifact.
“Wait! You can’t use it to save her!” Duan Jiude shouted in surprise suddenly. With the tortoiseshell in his hand, he said as he looked at Xu Que in terror, “We can’t act rashly now. Just now I practiced a divination that told me this is a dead end where nobody can survive. Anyone who acts rashly will absolutely be killed by it!”
“What?” Hearing that, Xu Que was shocked, and his eyes got wide. Every single person here was also shocked by Duan Jiude’s words. They didn’t expect the result of Duan Jiude’s divination would be so ominous.
“She is just over there in front of us! But I can’t save her because of the hidden dangers here! What the h*ll is hiding behind this Secret Door?” Xu Que said as he clenched his teeth and fists. According to his style, he would never give up on saving Liu Jingning because of the result of Duan Jiude’s divination. He was planning to save her. However, his instinct kept telling him that something dangerous was approaching, which even gave him a feeling of suffocation.
“Could I still use my head to save her now?” Buttface asked.
“Don’t do anything reckless!” Duan Jiude said as he shook his head seriously. This was the most ominous result of a divination he had ever seen.
Xu Que frowned as he asked the System, “System, check this thing out and tell me what it is! Also, do you have a method to get Liu Jingning out?”
DING! “Through investigation, this thing has a great amount of energy, which is the Taoist Connotation of a dead deity. It is called Godhead here! It will devour anyone whose Taoist Connotation is weaker than it. Therefore, the Host is warned to stay away from it!” The System replied. Hearing this, Xu Que’s face got dark, and he was quite disappointed. He didn’t expect this thing was the Godhead!
What was a Godhead? It was the symbol of deities. Only those who had a Godhead could be regarded as a deity! If a cultivators’ Taoist Connotation was compared to a drop of water, the Godhead would be a sea. What would happen when a drop of water fell into the sea? According to the System’s explanation, Liu Jingning should have been devoured by this Godhead. It was impossible to save her now. Even worse, anyone who came close to her would also be devoured by the Godhead!
“D*mn!” Xu Que was very angry because he didn’t expect the situation would be so serious. One moment ago, he thought he was going to reunite with Liu Jingning. Now, he found Liu Jingning might leave him forever. Because of this, he felt so helpless, which also made him feel quite angry.
“System, find a way to save her! I will take Liu Jingning out alive whatever it takes!” Xu Que shouted at the System angrily in his heart at this moment. He would never leave Liu Jingning in this place, where she would be devoured by that so-called Godhead!
DING! “Through investigation, two options have been found for the Host…” the System replied as a dialogue box which included two options appeared in the System interface. Seeing that, Xu Que squinted his eyes and clenched his fists until the blue veins in his hands bulged. It was so difficult to make a choice between the two cruel options provided by the System.
The first option was quite simple. He could send someone into this place. When the Godhead was trying to devour that person, Xu Que could take the opportunity to get Liu Jingning out. The one sent in by him would replace Liu Jingning and stay in this place forever. The second option was that Xu Que could confront the Godhead with his Holy Physique and the Chaotic Green Lotus in his body. It was quite risky. If he defeated the Godhead, the Chaotic Green Lotus could devour the Godhead. If he failed, he would be devoured by the Godhead and would never reincarnate!
“The first option would benefit himself by harming others. The second option was way too risky for him. What should I choose?” Xu Que was arguing with himself. Then a strand of chilly light appeared in Xu Que’s eyes. He started to glance at everyone from the sects out of the corner of his eyes!
